the next steps for syria. the united states has insisted president assad must go. the russians have been against the idea. the u.s. is not going to cause budge on this one the yatsd stands with the american people in insisting that process result in a unified democratic syria. and a future of this kind cannot possibly include assad. >> makes the issue much more complex at least five different cities. u.s. officials say the syrians have already mixed the components for the deadly chemical weapon saran gas. the question remains whether he plans to use saran gas for murder against his own people. do u.s. officials say that they think that he would actually do this? >> well, behind the scenes, they appear to be quite worried. the president, defense secretary and secretary of state hillary clinton have publicly warned assad not to do so describings it a a red line the syrians say pretext for u.s. and outside military intervention. some we spoke to agree citing the unlikely hood that assad would use saran nerve gas near damascus where the winds could shift and gas his own regime. >> a key mark
the syrian president bashar al assad may be looking for a safe haven outside syria. brian todd has the story for us. >> there's little doubt that bashar al assad's regime is in trouble now. he's isolated, has few friends left in the world. we've now gotten reports that assad may be casting a net among those friends for a way out. his army is on the ropes, fighting for its life around damascus and aleppo. he may be in the process of making chemical weapons. right now, everything about assad smacks of desperation. he's looking into the possibility of seeking asylum for himself, his family and their inner circle in latin america. >> we understand that some countries both in the region and elsewhere have offered to host assad and his family should he choose to lead syria. >> the foreign minister was recently in venezuela delivering a message from bashar al assad. the minister was also in cuba and ecuador bringing classified letters from assad to leaders there. we could not get responses from syrian leaders in the u.s. or latin american governments to respond. multiple sources in the u.s., europe

the main opposition group on the path to becoming the only government in syria and if and when the rebels take out assad. >> we made a decision that the syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative to the syrian people in opposition to the assad regime so we will provide them recognition and obviously with that recognition comes responsibility on the part of that coalition. >>shepard: the civil war has killed more than 40,000 people in the last 20 months and it is still going on. syrian state television say a huge explosion hit the capital of damascus and the military is now firing scud mills at the rebels. jonathan hunt is at the united nations. this firing of scud missiles is new. >>jonathan: it is. u.s. defense officials believe that some half dozen or so of the scud missiles have been fired at targets north of damascus by the syrian security forces aiming at the rebels in the last few days. they do not have any reports any casualties. you will wreck that scud mi
